Merethis has released Centreon 2.1.8 (I’ve missed the 2.1.7 :))
The update is very simple:

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.1.8.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.8
sudo ./ -u /etc/centreon

After accepting the license, simply answer yes to all the questions you’ll see.

When finished, connect to the web interface and follow the “NEXT, NEXT, NEXT” steps.
Your database will be updated twice (from 2.1.6 to 2.1.7 then from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8).

It’s finished.

Enjoy Continue reading »
